Re: Wayne wants to work with Von again!

...and Eldritch did ask Wayne if he'd contribute to the third album, even after Wayne said he was going to go join Craig. The rancour clearly set in around the Sisterhood shenanigans, and when it was clearly such a boon to their projects to feud through the media! This was all covered in the Mass M...

Eyes of Caligula certainly looks more immediately worthy of dissection than many of Von's more recent lyrics. He starts with the reference to the new Jerusalem, presumably a reference to the sentiments of Blake's poem which he went misty-eyed about on that Belgian radio show in 1984. "There is no us...

In-store appearance at Vinyl Fetish, Los Angeles, October 19

New on my blog, a look into an apparent visit to a record shop by TSOM on their first West Coast tour in 1983. https://sistersfan.blogspot.com/2020/04 ... rance.html
Other recent posts include Zurich and Glasgow 1985. Next post will therefore be on a 1984 gig!

Talking amongst old friends I've often used NMA as an example for the way forward for The Girls.

Defender of the faith, that is. Coin collectors know better! "Defender of the faith" eh? Sounds a bit like another well-known group's motto! This is presumably Von's ironic comments on the Brexit issue. It looks as if Trump got him thinking about making an album, but Boris has been the catalyst (no...

According to the Wacken website, in order to meet their curfew, they basically had to cancel one of two bands - Mambo Kurt (?) or TSoM. But as the former are playing toher stages ov...

Wayne put a second extract up last week where he's quite open in his self-appraisal.

Fantastic journalism Mark - you've forensically dissected the songs lyrically and musically and laid Eldritch's soul bare for all to see and thereby better appreciate his unique talent. I would have the same songs as you in the top 3, even though I have spent the past thirty-five + years being one o...
